Understanding the dynamics of restless volcanoes helps people be anticipated before devastating volcanic eruptions. Yan Zhan establishs physical models to decipher the early warning from volcanoes such as surface motion, earthquakes, and gas emissions. Yan also develops data-model fusion techniques to make volcanic eruption forecasts possible. The data assimilation framework catalyzes fast iterates of models to describe volcanoes’ behavior by integrating multiple observations from geology, geophysics, geodesy, and geochemistry.
